GIL ESPINOSA, MARIA ISABEL. Love that sets us free. An apprximation to the liberating horizon of moral. Theol. Xave. [online]. 2011, vol.61, n.171, pp. 97-129. ISSN 0120-3649.
When pondering about moral life and spiritual life, we are in danger of treating each issue separately, as if dealing with two isolated compartments where there is not a single relation between them. This fragmentation poses disastrous consequences for the believers, such as, for instance, the divorce between faith and life, in which God is transformed into a heavy burden for moral conscience. However, it cannot exist a moral life without an authentic spiritual life. These are two indissolubly attached dimensions in the life of believers, as they do not merely co-exist, but they mutually imply, condition, and construct each other. Thus, moral and spirituality cannot be presented, or live, as two isolated compartments.
